Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!!!

Please click here for CardzTV You're The Man Blog Hop! :0)

Welcome to Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!! Today we are celebrating a very special little girl's first birthday. She has had a difficult fight this past year and we felt what better way to celebrate her life than have a blog hop! Felicity has touched many lives even though she is not even one yet. Every day she makes therapists, doctors, and even her family smile. The purpose of this hop is to be a blessing. So the way to win our blog candy will be for you to be a blessing to someone around you. Then photograph how you have been a blessing with either a craft project or taking a meal to someone, etc. Share it with us and that gives you an extra entry besides leaving comments on all the hop stops. If you arrived from Kristy's blog then you are in the right place. If not please go back to the beginning at Shawnee's blog and make sure you don't miss all the amazing ways my friends have chosen to bless others.

Blog candy for this hop is one paper pack and April Showers Cricut Cartridge. There are two ways to earn blog candy:
1. Leave a comment on each blog
2. Come back and post how you blessed someone else with a link.
3. Tweet/Facebook about the blog hop

For my project I decided to do a Sunshine Basket. What's a Sunshine Basket you ask? It's a basket that contains everything yellow to brighten up someone's day. I found it on Pinterest. The card is from Silhouette. The cute face is a Peachy Keen Stamp and the sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps called Simply Said. My basket is going to be donated to a scrapbooking funraiser to help raise money to a young girl(age 17) who is suffering from a rare genetic disorder called. F.O.P.


I will also be giving away a sunshine basket to one lucky winner as my way of saying thank you and blessing you for hopping along with me!! It will not be the same as the one pictured since that one will be given as a donation, but it will be a yellow basket with yellow goodies which include tissue, tea, note pad, cards, picture frame, cupcake photo holder and much more!! All you have to do is subscribe to my blog and leave a message. Now you are onto your next hop stop!! Don't forget to hop and bless someone today!!

Thanks so much for joining us!!

50th Wedding Anniversary Explosion Box

Hi Everyone! I made this explosion box a while back for someone who was celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary and happened to save it on my Gypsy. I found out today that a family friend is going to be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this Saturday. I made a few changes as well a added a girls headband with a flower to keep the box closed. I love this idea. I think I will do this more often when I am making the boxes. I also made a small 3x3 card with Birthday bash and Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridges. The shape card was cut at 3 inches and the cupcake was cut at 2 inches. The cute play on words sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps called Make A Wish.

Ice Cream Onesies

Hi Everyone! I had so much fun making these adorable ice cream onesie's. I have made them in the past, but I tried a little something different this time. I saw a video on Youtube where you could use a Sundae mug and add a spoon to make it look like a sundae, but I couldn't find one at Target so I used a bowl instead to look like three scoops of ice cream in a bowl. Then I wandered over to the table setting area and couldn't believe my eyes, can you see picture #2, that's a flower pot that looks like a cone!!! I was so excited!! I had to get it!! The tag was made from Sweet Treat Cricut Cartridge. The tags were cut at 3.5 and 3 inches and each ice cream and cupcake design was cut at 2 inches. The sentiment on the front is from Simply Said and the sentiment on the back is from Christmas Joy, both are from CardzTV Stamps.
